The first month of the year is now behind us. January was marked by the announcement of Emirates' new daily service between Dubai and Zagreb, which will launch on June 1 with a wide-body Boeing 777-300 aircraft. News of the new route launch was the most popular item ever published on EX-YU Aviation News. A job posting by Ryanair for crew in Slovenia also caught the attention of readers and has outperformed last year's most popular article on the site, positioning itself as the second most popular news item behind the Emirates launch.
